Hong Kong Cruises

This iconic port features plenty of personality in its array of islands and neighbourhoods, whether explored by old-fashioned tram, charming ferry or on foot. Hong Kong’s famous skyline is even more stunning at night when it’s lit up with a laser light show. Take a trek up to Victoria Peak to admire the view, spend your day browsing through bustling markets and sample all the delights contained in the city’s exquisite tea parlours. Visit a contemporary art gallery or take in classical opera under the stars! Chinese heritage is given a colonial twist in this fascinating, contemporary city.

What You Need To Know About Hong Kong

What are the can’t-miss sights in Hong Kong?

Start your exploration of the city by taking the popular Peak Tram funicular up to the top of Victoria Peak. You’ll be rewarded with sweeping views of the Victoria Harbour and city below, and can visit onsite attractions like a Ripley’s Believe it or Not or simply admire the beauty of the gardens and hiking trails here. No trip to Hong Kong would be complete without a stop off at its famous markets, particularly the food stalls and street entertainers of the Temple Street Nigh Market. This cosmopolitan city offers a wealth of museums to visit on a rainy day, including the Cultural Centre, Museum of Art, Science Museum and Space Museum!

How can you reach Hong Kong from the cruise terminal?

There are two main cruise terminals in Hong Kong, both positioned in the Kowloon district. If you dock at Ocean Terminal, you’re a stone’s throw away from the famous Star Ferry as well as all the hustle and bustle of the waterfront. Kai Tak is a bit further afield, requiring a short shuttle bus or taxi ride into the main tourist-oriented sections of the city. The most scenic way to get around is definitely by the historic Star Ferry, but there are also charming double-decker trams, a sleek metro MTR system, and a well-organised network of buses.

Parking facilities around the cruise terminal

Parking can be a bit of a struggle in downtown Hong Kong, and it’s important to note that while you’ll find a private car park at the cruise terminal there is no overnight parking allowed. Short-term parking is available at the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal car park, which offers space for up to 113 vehicles. These do fill up quickly, particularly during peak travel times and on weekends. As a result, it may be best to look into the efficient public transport system instead!


Shopping is a prime pastime in bustling Hong Kong, and not just in its famous markets. Visit Hollywood Road to shop for beautiful antiques at bargain prices, or pick up a traditional herbal remedy in the medicinal stalls along Bonham Street. Kowloon’s Tsim Sha Tsui neighbourhood offers modern shopping centres and the bustling nightlife hub along Nathan Road. Be sure to pick up some jade jewellery!

Hong Kong’s history as a British colony can be seen in areas like Possession Point, where the Brits took control back in 1841. Today it’s a spot for reflection, dotted with elegant pagodas and water features. The Peninsula Hotel is another colonial hotspot, a top place to enjoy a traditional English high tea.

On the other hand, you can see the traditional Chinese side of Hong Kong in spaces like the Floating Fishing Village or Yuen Po Bird Garden, selling live crickets and colourful song birds. You can also visit the world’s largest bronze Buddha in Lantau Island’s monastery.

There are several islands that fall under the jurisdiction of Hong Kong, all easily accessible by ferry. In addition to Lantau Island (home to Hong Kong Disneyland!) there’s also Cheung Chau, the place to be for natural tranquillity as cars are banned here.
